how are they collecting the user complaints? if it is only users who have scheduled a genuis bar appointment specifically over "antenna" or "reception" problem - then I suspect the true number may be 10 times higher than what Apple is reporting. i would like to see the dropped cal stats for iPhone 2G. if a case solves the problem that is not too bad - since I wsa looking in to something like this: http://www.ivyskin.com/iphone-4-case...tion-case.html which...
Oh no - the signal loss is infectious - keep your other cell phones away from the iPhone 4 else you will be infected as well!
The *real* reason for the con call is to place all the blame on AT&T and to announce that the iPhone will be available on Verizon effective today with expected sales of 5 million Verizon iPhones over the weekend.
I had the same thought - regrading Log vs Linear. Maybe a better approach would be this scale: instead of 5 bars - Awesome! instead of 4 bars - Better Instead of 3 bars - Cool Instead of 2 bars - Depends (trying to find a better one here) Instead of 1 bar - Eek Instead of 0 bars - Fail Which could be abbreviated A - B - C - D - E - F and maybe even use a plus or minus to indicate either data signal or WiFi as in A+, B- etc.
Well then what is the point of speculating AFTER the press-conference? If you want to get your name in the headlines for your latest bit of make-believe as to what your best guess will be as to the content or outcome of the press release - you have to get while the getting is good. If the result of the press conference is something along the lines of only 1% of units are affected and those will be exchanged or repaired at no charge - then the whole issue *should* fizzle...
especially if it meant that current owners simply traded in their defective unit for a new one - and then the returned units got fix with the new parts or whatever - and were then sold for $50 off as refurb units. but even if it is a hardware fix - I and even if it only affects 100,000 units - i don't think that is a likely scenario. guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow to find out which analyst's dart board was the most accurate this time before making a purchasing...
According to that article a congressman is now involved - so ya now its gonna get fixed - and quick - on the cheap.
The "software" system for the iOS devices IS considered firmware (at least I think it is).
that *sounds* like they intend to electrically isolate the exterior antenna from the internal connector - which sounds to me like you would be permanently limiting the antenna's range until a new and improved internal only solution is devised. If am reading that right (and the report is correct) then it sounds like the fix for sometimes I get lousy reception is to always get lousy reception.
So is the timing of tomorrow's press release far enough away to say see I told ya so - its fixed. Or maybe so close that they can claim it is fixed but not enough people would have had enough time to test it out - essentially resetting the clock on the problem. Would be nice if they (meaning Jobs or whoever will lead the press conference) were to say tomorrow something along the lines of - yes there is a manufacturing problem affecting these serial numbers (insert start...
